Oakley to launch limited-edition 3D Hobbit glasses Can't Post

Spies tell us that eyewear manufacturer Oakley is creating a special, limited edition run of 3D glasses for The Hobbit. The branded, high-quality 3D glasses will retail for $150.

Our spy, Ringer Irish Man, tells us they will come in a sleek, wraparound style, like they'd belong on the beach, very unlike the Dwarf-inspired shape we've seen from mass-release Hobbit 3D glasses we reported last week.

Only 4,000 pairs will be made, and each will come with a gold/silver metal lapel pin of Bilbo's elvish sword Sting.

No doubt they will end up on ebay [In reply to] Can't Post

But with only 4000 being sold, the price won't be any different Wink.

This is what annoys me! Why don't they up the number of units and drop the price. That way they still make a profit, and give everyone a chance! It annoys me that only those with money can enjoy merchandise! Not that I'd buy them anyway - they're only 3D glasses Unsure

Wow thats a lot of money for some glasses that can hardly ever be used! [In reply to] Can't Post

Are they also designed to work with 3D TVs? As if so that might be something that someone could almost justify. If its just the standard cinema type which can only be used in the cinema then around 4000 people are gonna get ripped off, lol.

Though if i had loads and loads of spare cash i probably would splash out on them, haha. Tongue
